As others said, A Scout STARTS working on a rank as soon as he successfully passes a board of review for the previous rank. He can only use the old requirements for rank advancement until he finishes his NEXT Board of Review. Starting on a Merit badge that counts for Life would only count as starting work on Life only if it was done after he had earned the Star rank. Similarly, completing one of the requirements for First Class before he completed all requirements for either Tenderfoot or Second Class would NOT qualify as "working toward First Class".agdparker wrote:I was looking at the requirments for Life rank and the EDGE requirements. From the USSSP pages, if a Scout has already "started" on the requirements before they came out, they may use the old requirements, I believe. If that's the case, what exactly constitutes "starting" on the requirements. If they earned a MB that gets credited to the Life rank (3rd non-Eagle-required MB, for instance) before the new requirements came in, does that mean that they can use the old requirements?
I'm trying to see when EDGE came in, but the old requirements link is broken right now.
Thanks. We try to respond as soon as we can! (It helps that I'm home most days, since I'm retired. And as I wrote David, that was an easy fix. I had forgotten to upload a file.)agdparker wrote:Edit: Paul fixed the link within minutes of me reporting it. Talk about service!
